Advanced Energy Systems
We develop processes and associated materials for advanced chemical conversions and separations. This work includes converting coal, natural gas, oil, biomass, and other unconventional feedstocks to valuable fuels, chemicals, and electricity. Our accomplishments include the commercialization of microchannel technologies for reactive heat exchange, commercial development of advanced engine exhaust catalysts, and demonstration of transformational carbon capture solvent technologies.
Battery Materials and Systems
We work towards greater deployment of energy storage devices to improve the resiliency, reliability, and efficiency of the electric grid. The Battery Materials and Systems group leads national efforts, such as the Battery 500 Consortium, to address fundamental advancements that will enable next-generation battery technologies for electrical vehicles and a variety of other applications.
